    A great date spot. Beautifully decorated and warm environment. The crowd is pop and hipe. ❤ the Foie Gras, Roasted All Natural Chicken Breast, Pan Seared Branzino, Gnocchi Mac & Cheese and Pork Chops.

  • Berk K.

    The pan-seared branzino was delicious. Butter-cut beef fillet was legendary. A great spot for a romantic dinner. Also, a beautiful decor and a relatively quiet restaurant.

    butter is a fine dining experience. I do however advise it make a reservation it gets busy but defiantly worth the wait

    Service just wasn't good at all, and for the prices, the food should be way better and more substantial!

    Definitely exceeded expectations. I'm with everyone about that Brussels sprouts appetizer...excellent. Cocktails are also great, but they better be at those prices.

    Chic and popular hangout. Food will cost a pretty penny but it's worth it.

  • Stephanie O.

    The raspberry beignets are a MUST. Polished off the plate in less than 3 minutes.

  • Kt L.

    The bread is toasted to perfection, but its sea salt crusted top is the real showstopper. Absolutely divine. For an appetizer, order the Brussels sprouts with homemade ricotta

    Great bar staff, but waiting team let it down. Food in our group was very hit and miss. Sadly more miss than hit.

    Venue is big and gorgeous. With Alex Guarnaschelli's name, it doesn't have a problem filling that space. Meal food is great but I was not quite satisfied with desserts...

    Harumi U · August 23, 2014

    Beignets for dessert!

    When I read the name of the restaurant I was expecting well...butter. To my joy it was more than that. If you can't pick up my sarcasm then forget you. FYI: I hate Foursquare.

    I had the corn soup/ravioli/tart (for restaurant week!) it was so good I almost peed myself. That dessert reminds of Christmas.

    Butter Midtown has a menu that's full of hearty dishes, many of which are cooked in a wood-fired oven. Standouts include the Welsh rarebit, the roasted chicken, and the monster Tomahawk steak for two.

    They drip hot caramel over the top of it so it sizzles briefly and then freezes into this candle-like beauty. Read more
